Drummer and composer Brian Bennett is the man behind the exciting, tension-filled music on 'Drama Montage' Volumes 1 & 2 – two of the finest albums within the Bruton Music library.

Best known as the drummer with legendary pop group The Shadows, in the ’60s Bennett’s career as a composer took off. He kick-started his career as a composer of library music in the ’70s at the KPM 1000 Series under the aegis of Robin Phillips; when Phillips left to form Bruton Music, Bennett went with him.

'Drama Montage', recorded in 1978, was his first Bruton Music assignment – an album aimed at the world of television thrillers and cop shows. Bennett came up with a brilliant set of compositions ideally suited to car chases, shoot-outs, stakeouts and all manner of contemporary dramatic situations. As a result, the 'Drama Montage' material turned up in shows such as The Sweeney, Strangers, Shoestring, Bergerac and Return of the Saint.

More than three decades on, 'Drama Montage' Volumes 1 & 2 are as exciting and engaging as they ever were and illustrate why Bennett enjoyed such success as a library music composer.
